Chapter 9 - The Christmas Present

      "Hasn't this timeframe been mostly a timeframe of misery for mankind, and killing, and war, slavery, destruction, murder, looting, and so on?" interjected Tony. "We've got nothing to crow about. Apart from a few bright spots, this timeframe has been one of hell on earth."

      "But there have been those bright spots," said Ross. "Don't ignore the bright spots. They are indications of a movement in progress. No one can determine what the world would be like today had this movement not been in progress, though the progress was evidently slow and has been interlaced with many errors. If it hadn't been for those bright spots that bring the real dimension of humanity to light, the forces of empire might have already destroyed the world. Of course far more progress is needed, or else we may yet get to that."

      I turned to Tony. "The reason why progress has been so painstakingly slow evidently reflects the fact that for most of the last two millennia mankind hasn't had a scientific platform available for its scientific and spiritual development. All the movements happened 'off the cuff' so to speak. Mary was the first to develop the kind of platform that puts scientific and spiritual development onto a purely scientific footing, though this platform remains still largely unknown. The masters of empire have so far been successful in keeping it under wraps. They had to do this. If they allowed this development to happen, it would have spelled the end of empire already. The four columns in Mary's structure represent four distinct development streams. The very first of these deals with the disease of oligarchism, manifest as empire. This disease has been like a millstone hanging around mankind's neck for a long time already, going back almost to the very dawn of civilization. Every effort to heal mankind of this disease has so far failed. Mary has put in her structure a pathway before mankind by which this ancient challenge can be met. She defined her four development streams as four rivers and gave each of them a geographic direction, presented in the sequence of the cycle of the Sun on the sky during a day, such as northward to the dawn, eastward to the sunrise, southward to the heat of the day, and westward to the sunset. Her focus on healing mankind of oligarchy, is related to the dawn. In one sense it relates to the dawn of civilization, but in a more immediate sense, the dawn is a daily thing. The challenge to heal oneself and society of oligarchism is a daily challenge. All the other challenges are subsequent. In this sense Mary's four development streams follow each other sequentially according to the cycle of the Sun, from dawn to sunset."

      I turned to Sylvia. "As far as I can see, Mary related all of her major works to these four development streams, including the Manual that governs her church. And guess where she places the officers of her church in this context. She places them at the lowest level in the first column with the assigned task to transact the business of the church according to its constitutional principles, rather than to conduct the business of the church. She lays out a contrast that is world shaping. Those who 'conduct' the affairs of mankind are the oligarchs, the masters of empire, while those who 'transact' the government of society according to universal constitutional principles, are the servants society has hired to fulfill a needed role for its general welfare. In today's world the shift to oligarchism is almost complete. The thing that should never happen, an oligarchy conducting the living of society, is now so deeply entrenched that the collapse of civilization is immanent, including the large-scale depopulation of the planet. The path is already mapped out. The goal to murder 4 to 5 billion people, as some highly placed rulers of empire have demanded for almost half a century already, is now set to be carried out through medical genocide, economic genocide, environmental genocide via the climate change hoax, and nutritional genocide by burning food in automobiles. Mary's first development stream takes us out of the sewer of oligarchy. The first step, a moral step, would invite us to consider our membership with all of humanity. The scientific step would be to consider our universal marriage to one another as human beings and the platform of discipline that makes the outcome secure and enriching.

      "At the top level," I continued, "Mary points out that mankind has no need for mass meetings, mass movements, and mass power, which have no place in the lateral world reflecting the power of Principle, the principle of the Universe, and its harmonizing Spirit that is Love. Mary defines the development flow in this river of the 'dawn' that takes us far away from oligarchism and holocaustism, as, 'The love of the good and beautiful, and their immortality.' She further presents us a list of four terms that define the distinct qualities of the Intelligence of the Universe, or God, that the four rivers also represent. The first term of these four, is, 'incorporeal.' She is saying in essence, the Intelligence of the Universe is not incorporated in any one or any thing, but is the essence of the Universe and every aspect within it, including mankind. She is saying that the unity of God and man is a unity that is 'One' in quality, though multiform in 'office.' Oligarchism flows in the opposite direction, into isolation and corporatism. Corporatism and oligarchism are one and the same. Empire will rule for as long as corporatism is upheld, which exists on the platform of the isolation of mankind from itself. Corporatism is the summary term for oligarchism and empire, and mass-movements, and mass-power. Power is the essence of Principle, the Intention of Intelligence, and the manifest of ideas unfolding into form. Mary says of the river of the dawn, flowing northward, that 'its gates open to the North Star, the Word, the polar magnet of Revelation.' The world's oligarchy acknowledges this flow. Consequently it tries to prevent the development of science and every scientific movement that leads to a new renaissance, which invariably dooms oligarchism. The weapon it wields in its war to prevent a new renaissance is the weapon of genocide, which intentionally includes medical genocide, economic genocide, environmental genocide, biological genocide, starvation genocide, and so on.

      "Here Mary's focus on 'marriage' becomes important as an element located at the level of Science, meaning the universal marriage of mankind with one-another as human beings, reflecting an aspect of universal Principle," I continued my presentation. "Murder, depopulation, genocide, are affronts in the sphere of the universal marriage of mankind. Whatever injures one, or denies the life of one, injures the whole of mankind. The sewer must not be allowed to invade the human realm. The scientific principle of the universal marriage of mankind must be developed to the highest degree possible on the platform of the Principle of Universal Love, for the security, life, freedom, and happiness of the whole of humanity. The great principles of civilization, the Principle of the General Welfare, and the Westphalian Principle of the Advantage of the Other, rest on the foundation of the Principle of the Universal Marriage of Mankind. On this foundation all the claims of oligarchism can be dissolved and the world be cleansed of empire."

      "This is Mary's answer to the weapons mythology story," Ross interjected.

      "But Mary presented four rivers, not just one," I said and raised my hand. "The second river deals with the rights of a human being as a spiritual entity of the highest order. Our President Franklin Roosevelt once gave the nation a list of civil rights that he had committed himself to implementing, and to help the world to attain as essential human freedoms. He defines this basic concept of civil human rights as: 'The freedom of speech and expression -- everywhere in the world; the freedom of every person to worship God in his own way -- everywhere in the world; the freedom from want, which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants -- everywhere in the world; and freedom from fear, which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor -- anywhere in the world.' Long before president Roosevelt had coined his four freedoms, Mary had put a sweeping platform for universal freedoms on the plate of society in her second river, the river of the sunrise. The defined the river as 'The rights of woman acknowledged morally, civilly, and socially.' She described the term 'woman' in 1884, as the 'highest term for man,' which she defined as 'the generic term for all that reflects God's image and likeness,' or as John the Revelator had beheld the highest image of mankind, as 'a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars,' the 'stars of rejoicing' as Mary had seen them. On this infinitely tall platform she placed the universal rights of man, to be acknowledged morally, civilly, and socially, and to be so respected. On this platform nuclear war becomes impossible, even war itself. Also, on this platform the devolution of culture becomes impossible, as we have it promoted today with the project of freedom from culture; or the devolution of science, as we have it promoted today with the project of freedom from truth; or the devolution of humanity, as we have it promoted today with the perversion that defines mankind as an accidental ape, or a bunch of cattle to be culled at will, or even a cancer on the earth that must be eradicated with depopulation. Nor will it be possible on this platform to eradicate the social intimacy in society as we have it pursued today with the worldwide promotion of the sexual amputation of men and women by means of the circumcision and the infibulation, which creates slaves to be deployed in the war of empire against the Principle of the General Welfare. Mary says, mankind is sacred, divine, which must be acknowledged on all fronts. She defines in this river the quality of the Intelligence of the Universe as being 'divine.'
